declared george bush the victor of the election, they've spent nearly $1 billion in to push forward a right-wing agenda. that includes funding think tanks, hoover, manhattan institute, to funding the activities on the ground of voter suppression and activities that take away the right of the people to exercise that sacred right of the franchise. they are massive. >> scot, i want to pause. i've been framing this as kind of buying your vote through advertising and that kind of thing. but what i found fascinating about the bradley foundation is they lay the intellectual justification for a variety of conservative policy positions. they fund research. they also fund the arts and things that are kind of community-based within wisconsin and milwaukee. but that idea of laying the intellectual framework suggests to me that this is not easily rooted out, for example, with new legislation. >> no. and the thing is, melissa, they have spent half a billion dollars. 60% of that is for organizations outside the state of wisconsin. they create science, junk science in universities and these think t

the last election. john mccain and george w. bush, three quarters of the likely boarders are going to support mitt romney in this election. >> what are catholics supposed to do this time around? to buy contraceptives for employees of the church and you turn around. the other side of cathol simp promotes the fact of giving to the poor and a lot of the democratic values? >> right. one of the things that you mentioned is that we have two vice presidential candidates who were both catholic and they both represent varying different emphasis of the catholic church in their own way. one of the things we're seeing this year is catholics really have two options. really presented to them and both faithful to catholic teaching. and teaching on social justice. a recent survey. we found that interestingly enough, they say that 2-1 is they would -- they would like to see an emphasis on church leaders from social justice issues and that divide falls out the way you think it would, 6-10 would like to see more emphasis on social justice. the footprints in the church are supporting obama and about 2

adviser to george w. bush. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. nice to be with you. >> start with the job numbers on friday. the last jobs report before the election. what do they tell us about 34erk's economy today? what impact do you expect it to have on the election? >> i don't think it will have much impact on the election because it is not that a much different from the overall trend over the last year ito 18 months. i think it was a fairly solid number. certainly better than expected and you got some revisions upward on the jobs number itself. overall, growth has been relative ly modest in the u.s. and that's reflected in the jobs number. this is an encouraging month. you never want to make too much out of any one month. >> i was surprised at the numbers. ed, what do you think? >> i think there are good things that each candidate can take out of it. obviously the fact the unemployment rate ticked up to something governor romney will emphasize, higher than when the president took office. that's the headline number. i agree with austan. the fact you had 171,000 jobs this month

that george bush was in office. they seemed to disregard everything that happened during that period it just never happened. it all began under the obama administration. it just astounds me how the whole platform is based on george bush's policies. this 12 million at job creation is, again, just the smoke and mirrors. they use this every time they run. bush said he would lower taxes, create jobs. the tea party said they were born to create jobs. it seems like the same rhetoric over and over again. guest: great question, doug. i was critical of the bush presidency. we funded things like no child left behind. we created prescription drug programs in the not pay for them. the american people held the republican party responsible for it and threw them out of office. they are focused on creating jobs, growing the economy, and not focusing on big spending programs we know the american people do not want. you have the commitment of republicans that are no. 1 jobs focus will be on the economy. host: a.j. spiker, the chair of the iowa republican party joining us this morning from des moines.

(cheers and applause) we miss you, sir. we miss you. but at this point, either candidate still has a shot as long as they can win over one key demographic. >> president obama and governor romney faced off. many polls showing them running neck in neck, making the remaining undecided voters more important than ever. >> the undecided voters. the voters in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if.
